City of El Paso Municipal Courts

Video Arraignment System


Scope of Work: Upgraded Video Arraignment System for Municipal Courts and Bond Stations

Date: March 2020

Value: $61,000 + 5 Year Support Contract

Municipal Court Requested Project Goals
The City of El Paso Municipal Courts requested an equipment upgrade for the video arraignment system. The solution would require integration with the existing LifeSize contract for their Video Jail Arraignment sessions. This includes making use of the available licenses and communication with the existing LifeSize systems.

The court anticipated to gain efficiencies in the quality of calls and to add the ability to record sessions to the LifeSize cloud. The upgrade was to be completed in Pebble Hills, The Westside, and Mission Valley bond stations, and connect to the new system at Northeast and Central Municipal courtrooms.

  • install all new video arraignment equipment
